OnePlus 5 and 5T Will be Getting Faster Android Updates As Well

OxygenOS Open Betas for the OnePlus 5 and 5T now support Project Treble

OxygenOS Open Betas for the OnePlus 5 and 5T now support Project Treble

Today, OnePlus released a new Open Beta for the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T.

Project Treble is a Google's initiative to resolve one of the most common problems faced by Android devices - slower updates. Apart from the OnePlus 5 and 5T, around 20 other smartphones including the Huawei P10/P10 Plus and LG's V30 have made the jump.

In the latest OxygenOS open beta (v13 for OP5 and v11 for OP5T), OnePlus has included a number of changes.

"After several months of evaluation and hard work, we finally found a solution to make this possible, and we are very excited to share this good news with you", says the OnePlus forum post for Project Treble. Last year OnePlus said that their devices would not support Project Treble, but it seems that they have tripped over their stance. This list comes days before the company is set to host its first OnePlus Ear Forums meeting in India where the company is likely to gather more feedback about its devices including its latest flagship, the OnePlus 6 as it is the first meetup after the launch.


OnePlus, following the release of their new update schedule, has introduced another big announcement as it relates to updates for the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T.

Changelog on the Open Beta 13 and 11 for the OnePlus 5T and the OnePlus 5, respectively.

OnePlus 6 camera test - How good is the new OnePlus 6? This also means that future smartphone owners have another reason to consider buying a OnePlus device since not many smartphone makers are known for providing timely software updates. With the update, you get a color wheel for customization, which is what a lot of users have been asking for. HDR settings are now kept from the last time app was used while editing experience in the Gallery has been optimized together with the editing experience in Gallery. We are not sure when OnePlus would release the stable version, with all these new features, for the OnePlus 5 and 5T. The Hidden Drawer, which appears when you pull from the left of the launcher, also gets some improvements in terms of app listings. However, if you have already taken the step and jumped on to the beta bandwagon, then it is pretty easy to install the new update.
